Out for a drive
I took a little drive yesterday way north of Phoenix past the towns of Cave Creek and Carefree. I was out to find some native American ruins that I saw on my Arizona atlas. When I first moved to Arizona, this area was way, way out of town and I would have traveled quite a distance in the desert foothills once I passed Carefree. Today it's all grown up. There were subdivisions and golf courses all the way to the border with Tonto National Forrest. This is one of the subdivisions I passed along the way. It's called Tonto Hills.
There were lots of houses in the area, some of them climbing up the hillside to command a nice view. This was one of the houses I passed.
More on my hike to the ruins tomorrow.
